Samsung announced the dates for the arrival of Android 14 to more devices. However, the update appears to be causing an annoying issue for Android Auto users: music apps are momentarily stopping.
Although user complaints so far indicate that apps start working again after restarting music or the connection, Google has already included the situation in the list of known problems and is investigating a solution as quickly as possible.
What drivers report
Some drivers using Android Auto shared reports of problems with the update to Android 14 on Google and Reddit forums. According to the complaints, music applications display the message that music is playing, but no sound comes from the speakers.
The issue does not appear to be associated with a specific music app or a particular car model. In the reports, users mentioned different vehicles. Affected music applications include Spotify, YouTube Music, among others.
As reported by those affected, the problem is usually resolved by restarting the music or the entire connection. However, Google appears to recognize how annoying the bug can be for drivers.
The company is conducting a detailed investigation of the issue, looking to provide a solution before expanding the update to new devices.
